1 About this Guide

This Guide provides instructions on how to install and configure your Cisco Aironet 3600 Series Access Point and how to install any port modules. This guide also provides mounting instructions and limited troubleshooting procedures.

The 3600 Series Access Point is referred to as the access point in this document.

2 Introduction to the Access Point

The 3600 series supports high-performingSpectrum Intelligence which sustains three spatial stream rates over a deployable distance with high reliability when serving clients. The 3600 series provides high reliability and overall wireless performance.

The 3600 series offers dual-bandradios (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) with integrated and external antenna options. The access points support fullinter-operabilitywith leading 802.11n clients, and support a mixed deployment with other access points and controllers.

The 3600 series access point is a controller-based(Unified) product and supports:

Simultaneous dual-band(2.4 GHz/5 GHz) radios

Integrated antennas on the 3602I access point model (AIR-CAP3602I-x-K9)

External antennas for rugged 3602E access point model (AIR-CAP3602E-x-K9)

Note The ‘x’ in the model numbers represents the regulatory domain. Refer to“Regulatory Domains” section on page 6 for a list of supported regulatory domains.

The features of the 3600 series are:

Processing sub-systems(including CPUs and memory) and radio hardware which supports:

Network management

CleanAir—Automaticdetection, classification, location and mitigation of RF interference

3 Safety Instructions

Translated versions of the following safety warnings are provided in the translated safety warnings document that is shipped with your access point. The translated warnings are also in the Translated Safety Warnings for Cisco Aironet Access Points, which is available on





This warning symbol means danger. You are in a situation that could cause bodily injury.



Before you work on any equipment, be aware of the hazards involved with electrical



circuitry and be familiar with standard practices for preventing accidents. Use the



statement number provided at the end of each warning to locate its translation in the



translated safety warnings that accompanied this device. Statement 1071











Read the installation instructions before you connect the system to its power source.



Statement 1004














Installation of the equipment must comply with local and national electrical codes.

Statement 1074

This product relies on the building’s installation for short-circuit(overcurrent) protection. Ensure that the protective device is rated not greater than:

20A. Statement 1005

Do not operate your wireless network device near unshielded blasting caps or in an explosive environment unless the device has been modified to be especially qualified for such use. Statement 245B

In order to comply with FCC radio frequency (RF) exposure limits, antennas should be located at a minimum of 7.9 inches (20 cm) or more from the body of all persons.

Statement 332

The fasteners you use to mount an access point on a ceiling must be capable of maintaining a minimum pullout force of 20 lbs (9 kg) and must use all 4 indented holes on the mounting bracket.

This product and all interconnected equipment must be installed indoors within the same building, including the associated LAN connections as defined by Environment A of the IEEE Standard.

The access point is suitable for use in environmental air space in accordance with section 300.22.C of the National Electrical Code and sections 2-128,12-010(3),and12-100of the Canadian Electrical Code, Part 1, C22.1. You should not install the power supply or power injector in air handling spaces.

Use only with listed ITE equipment.
